Hi lovelies! It's been a crazy few weeks - I'm preparing to move house while writing Book 9 for a fast-approaching deadline. I have two vlogs ready to edit, so those will be appearing very soon. In the meantime, if you missed the amazing Falling in Love and Fandom event I did with Maggie Harcourt, Lauren James and Michelle Toy at Waterstones Birmingham a couple of weeks ago, don't worry. The lovelies at Heart Full of Books filmed the whole thing! Find out which of hasn't embarrassed ourselves in front of Neil Gaiman (yet), who we would invite to dinner, which Hogwarts house we belong to and what we really think of fan fiction... Enjoy! xx

Hi lovelies, look what I found while doing a huge clearout of my office at home... It's the original list of characters from my third novel, It Started With a Kiss! As you'll see, several characters and plot points didn't make the end book. But this is where it all began! xxx

Hi lovelies, how's your week going? I'm frantically writing #Book9 and there will be a new vlog up this week, but I just wanted to pop in to recommend this lovely book to you. As you know, I don't do this often, but I think you'll adore this one. It's geeky, gorgeously romantic, funny and just the perfect romantic comedy. I actually hugged the book when I was reading it and didn't want the story to end! Unconventional is, quite simply, the best romantic comedy I have read for a long time. Maggie Harcourt is a fantastic writer and I can completely imagine this a film. If you need something to make you smile and believe that anything is possible, this is the perfect book for you! Here's the link - enjoy! xx https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1409590151/

Hi lovelies, how are you all? Hope you're well and happy and looking forward to the weekend :) I have a brand new, seaside vlog coming this weekend, but I thought I'd do a #tbt vlog this evening...
Ever wondered what it feels like to see your book being printed? (Answer: it's blimmin' awesome!) This is the vlog I filmed when I was lucky enough to go to the printers to see my books being made. (Warning: contains squeals!) xxx
